Downtown Girl is an aesthetic that revolves around the romanticization of living in downtown New York, especially in Autumn. It contrasts the Uptown Girl aesthetic and originated on Pinterest, later spreading to Tiktok. It is often grouped with Coquette due to common features such as Lana Del Rey music and Brandy Melville clothing but it has a somewhat different clothing style and a different colour scheme.

History

The specific history of this aesthetic is unclear. The term 'downtown girl' as a reference to a style of dress seems to first be in newspaper/magazine articles and pinterest posts from around 2008.
